I am working on a patch to fix a bunch of infelicities related to deletion,
including all the ones discussed here.  I passed a variable through get_dirlist
all the way to make_file so that the latter can report a protected file and
rsync won't even try to rmdir the pinned parent directory; make_file also
produces double-verbose messages about pinned directories.  At the same time it
was convenient to add support for --filter="-p .svn" (p for parent-protect),
but obviously I will use "t" instead of "p" if Wayne prefers.

Once I have made some more progress, I will post my patch here.  As always,
there may be bugs and it might not be the right way to accomplish what we want,
but it should be a good start.
